Achieving Gender Parity Can Add $12T Annually To World Economy, Study Shows

The Guardian: Tackling gender inequality could add $12tn to world economy, study finds
“…The McKinsey Global Institute has measured gender inequality across 95 countries, using 15 different indicators, including not just women’s role in the workplace, but everything from the availability of contraception to access to bank accounts. The study found that if each country could make progress towards closing the gender gap at the pace of the best-performing economy in its local region, an extra $12tn — equivalent to the GDP of Japan, Germany, and the U.K. combined — could be generated each year by 2025…” (Stewart, 9/23).
